August 18, 2004

On THIS DATE IN TWISTED-HISTORY in 2004 Donald Trump re-released his board game (Trump the Game) where players bid on real estate, buy big ticket money items (yachts, diamonds, toupees, expensive escorts, sports cars, airplanes and etc.) and broker billion dollar deals. The game was originally released in 1989 and at that time, the owners of ‘Monopoly’, Hasbro, discretely contacted Trump and asked how his game was really any different from their established game. The Donald replied, “Because I named my game “Trump the Game’, deal with it or ‘YOU’RE FIRED”. Just as in 1989, the 2004 version was roundly rejected by the gaming community. When informed about how people were buying the game as a gag-gift and how to illustrate even the rich and famous will wear an obvious bad hair-piece, Trump said. “It’s tangible, it’s solid, it’s beautiful. It’s artistic, from my standpoint, and I just love real estate.” When he was furthered queried and asked if he was talking about his hair or his board game, he answered, “Yes!”
